  • This question does not appear to be about server, networking, or related infrastructure administration within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about working with a service provider's management interface, such as cPanel. – HopelessN00b Jan 14 '15 at 1:27

Virtualmin has an FTP directory restriction option. – madphp Aug 17 '09 at 1:23

What you want is not actually a chroot. You want the DefaultRoot setting in ProFTPd.

You can set that in Virtualmin by browsing to Webmin>Servers>ProFTPd Server>Files and Directories, and set the option labeled "Limit users to directories" to "Home directory". Save it, and click "Apply changes" in the upper right corner.
